Product Description

Scott Swing 1389-4 fly rod

13’8″ 9-weight, 4-piece, double handed fly rod
Comes with aluminum case and partitioned cloth liner

Recommendation from Rod Designer Jim Bartschi:  Like its lighter line weight sibling above, this rod casts very long tight loops. It’s our choice when sink tips are the norm and for targeting the biggest salmon and steelhead.

  1. This rod is an absolute gun slinger and possibly the best two-handed rod I have ever cast. Everyone should own one of these, I don’t care who you are. We cast a 625 grain Rio Skagit Max Launch and a 610 grain Rio Scandi Launch. Both lines screamed out of the rod tip and unfurled at a commanding distance. With the Skagit I felt like I had the most control and I could manipulate the cast more than just wind it up and let it fly. The rod controlled the head through the sweep and lifted it into a D more easily for me. I felt like I had more time and space in the moment of casting and that resulted in ease of performance. The distance with the Scandi head was remarkable and I have never cast a two-handed rod as far. You feel like you’re throwing loops off the tip in a statuesque manner. No wobble, no separation from the tip to the butt, just a perfect lever for throwing fly line. This might be the one in the lineup. Versatile, powerful and easy, light and manageable for its size: all the big waters and all the big fish. I did enjoy a slice of humble pie when I attempted to cast a Rio Long Belly line on the 1389. It was flat out above my skill level and Dunc said something to me along the lines of, “Why would you even try to fish that thing when you could fish a Scandi head?” He’s a wise man.

  2. On first cast, I said, out loud, “Everyone should own one of these, even if you don’t fish with it.” I’ve never cast a more empowering two-handed fly rod. It’s just explosive. First, I tried it with a Rio Skagit Launch 625 grain head and could not have been more impressed with the intuitive feel this rod has for the line, and the raw line speed with a Skagit, not commonly chosen for casting prowess. It lifts and flattens the loop impressively, carrying the heavy head and sink tip as far as one cares to throw it. Casting distance was, predictably, even more impressive with a Scandi 610 grain (36 foot head). From a guy who normally requires a few dozen casts to figure out a new Spey rod, I just want to say that this thing is like a smart car, or perhaps a walker. I felt like I could do no wrong. On my first cast, my leader got hung in willows on the far bank of the river, easily 110 feet away. I know casters of that caliber but have never personally thrown a cast of that distance. Everyone is a hero with this rod.
